James Bowen (born on March 15, 1979) was a street musician in London when he found Bob the Ginger cat in Spring, 2007. The pair, now famous around the world, have been inseparable ever since. Bowen wrote the bestselling book, A Street Cat Named Bob and How He Saved My Life in 2013. As their book climbed bestseller lists in many countries and their fame skyrocketed, Bob began to receive hand-knitted scarves from all over the world. One such scarf can be seen on the cover of the paperback edition. <p> (Bowker Author Biography)
